Finnish Leverage 28/4/19


Preceded by ’The Devil’s Turn’ EP in the Summer of 2018, Finnish Heavy Rockers Leverage (Track Of The Day) unleashed 'DeterminUs' on Friday, their first full length album in a decade. Defying easy categorisation, they are neither a Power Metal or AOR band, nor an 80’s throwback, and for them it is all about making and playing music with heart and soul while having a blast doing so. With a unique blend of Symphonic and Melodic Hard Rock and a twist of Progressive Metal, their 2006 debut album ‘Tides’ created a buzz and the band signed to Frontiers for the 2008 follow-up, ‘Blind Fire’. They were then picked up by Spinefarm/Universal for ‘Circus Colossus’ the following year, but became inactive shortly after. Now they are back, with new singer Kimmo Blom and guitarist Mikko Salovaara among their ranks. ‘DeterminUs’ promises to be a highlight of the Melodic Metal scene in 2019.
